The Ovens & Murray Bowls Region Inc was officially incorporated in 2011, following a special meeting of club delegates of: Ovens & Murray East, West and Central Bowls Associations and the North Eastern and Ovens & Murray District Ladies Bowls Associations. This incorporation came as a regional response to the historic unification of the Royal Victorian Bowls Association and the Victorian Ladies Bowls Association at the Victorian State level. Unification at a State level resulted in the dissolution of RVBA & VLBA Groups & Associations across Victoria and, in its restructuring, prompted the merger of the five local Associations to form the Ovens & Murray Bowls Region Inc.. For any additional info contact the Region's Secretary.
